Today on Hello Animal Talks my guest joins me from South Africa, which for those of us in the U.S. is pretty far away. That in itself, along with her being someone I have followed for many years, made it very exciting for me to connect with Wynter Worsthorne, Animal Communicator, Teacher, and Author.
Wynter starts off our chat with a beautiful meditation to bring us all into our hearts to find the peace we are all seeking. It is also the perfect place to begin to access our connection to all living things, which is key for communicating with animals. During our talk, Wynter tells of her amazing experiences with wild animals that will fascinate you and open your world to a new way of thinking about who we are sharing the world with and how important they are.

On today's episode of Hello Animal Talks, I am talking with Rose De Dan of Wild Reiki and Shamanic Healing, from Seattle, Washington. Rose uses her gifts as a Reiki Master, Shaman, and Animal Communicator to bring healing to people and animals through connection. I was excited to learn about Rose’s perspective on zoos, and I loved hearing about the work she does with the animals there. She shares some amazing stories about the deep connections she has made with those who are wild but not free.
She also gives us the privilege of hearing a most beautiful message from a wild mountain lion in his dying days. Her experiences make it clear that connecting with the animals would give our world a depth of meaning that we have not yet experienced.

Today on Hello Animal Talks Jennie interviews Jude Langmaid, Vice President of St. Francis Farm Sanctuary. St. Francis Farm Sanctuary rescues dogs and cats from kill shelters who are in danger of being euthanized.
Established in 2013 by Last Chance Animal Rescue, St Francis Farm Animal Sanctuary is situated on 50 acres in Carlisle, SC. Currently, the farm is home to approximately 100 dogs and 50 cats. The sanctuary was created as a safe haven for animals that cannot thrive in a traditional home.
The sanctuary specializes in dogs that require an environment that can cater to their complex behavioral challenges. They also have a large number of animals with a wide variety of medical challenges and many senior dogs and cats that prove difficult to find forever homes for.
Their continuing goal is to address these challenges and provide an alternative situation that meets their individual needs including training and socialization as well as full access to ongoing medical care.

This week on Hello Animal Talks Jennie chats with Nayomi Gunarathna of Soi Dog Foundation.
Soi Dog Foundation (Soi Dog) was established in 2003 in Phuket, Thailand, to help the street dogs and cats who had no-one else to care for them. Over 70,000 strays roamed the island, with the numbers growing alarmingly due to a lack of spay and neuter programmes to control the population. Soi Dog was created to provide a humane and sustainable solution to managing the stray population and to address their medical needs. Funding then, as it does now, came entirely from individuals who shared, and continue to share, the vision of our founders.
Their work with street animals consists of spaying and neutering to prevent unwanted puppies and kittens being born into short lives of suffering, along with the rescue, vaccination, medical treatment, sheltering, and adoption of those that cannot be returned to their territory.

This week on Hello Animal Talks Jennie chats with Simon Jones founder and CEO of Helping Rhinos, an international NGO based in the UK which is dedicated to supporting animal conservation, most particularly saving Rhinos. Simon tells me about the work of Helping Rhinos which through its premier fundraising is able to support boots on the ground project partnerships, mostly in Africa dedicated to saving Rhinos. He speaks about the daunting prevalence of poaching and consequent anti-poaching measures that are implemented, including patrol teams, specially trained dogs, and air surveillance. He also shares about baby rhinos rescues, sanctuaries for rhino orphans, and work with the local communities to garner their support and add value to their lives.
Simon has spent time on conservation projects in Africa, working specifically on rhino conservation. In 2012 Simon felt his perfect blend of experience in both the charity and business sectors, combined with an unwavering passion for wildlife conservation, and in particular the rhino, could be used to greater effect. Simon founded Helping Rhinos and has led the organization in its growth, achieving success in terms of brand awareness, creating partnerships, and increasing revenue year on year, all allowing the organization to achieve tangible results in its goal of protecting rhino in their natural habitat.
